Christmas wishes

Christmas will be here in just a few days so before you become absorbed in final preparations and Christmas festivities, I’d like to wish you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

When I was looking for some wise words to share with you on this special occasion, I came across the following quote by the comedian Demetri Martin. It made me laugh and feel the mirth and I thought, why not something funny for a change? Here it goes:

I set a personal record on Christmas. I got my shopping done three weeks ahead of time. I had all the presents back at my apartment. I was halfway through wrapping them, and I realized, ‘Damn, I used the wrong wrapping paper.’ The paper I used said, ‘Happy Birthday.’ I didn’t want to waste it, so I just wrote ‘Jesus’ on it.

He probably made up the story but it could happen… So remember, if anything goes wrong during the festivities, keep calm, breathe deep and there surely be some practical solution!



  1. I actually did have that happen! The only thing I had to put a present in was a gift bag that said Happy Birthday. Luckily, I knew the person well and when I told her it was all I had, we both said at the same time, it is Jesus’ birthday. 🙂 Have a wonderful Christmas!
